The beloved Apple store Tekserve on West 23rd Street has just closed its doors, and its legendary Mac Museum needs a new home. The vintage Mac collection is impressive, and it’s now on the auction block—from the listing:

Collection of 35 selected Macintosh computer models including: Outbound, Macintosh 128k (TED 25th Anniversary Edition), Macintosh 128k (Signed by Steve Wozniak), NeXTcube, Apple IIc, Apple IIe, Apple III, Macintosh 128k, Macintosh SE, Macintosh Classic, Macintosh Portable, Macintosh LC II, Macintosh PowerBook 100, Macintosh PowerBook Duo 230, Macintosh Quadra 700, Macintosh Color Classic

The collection was valued around $14,000, but at press time the bid is already double that. The auction ends August 23rd, and also includes other items from the store, like typewriters and a 5-cent Coca-Cola machine.

The shop has been in business since 1987 and, as Cult of Mac notes was founded by Dick Demenus and David Lerner—it “became the go-to repair store for early Mac fans because of its fast, affordable service.
